Stayed here on a weekend visit to NYC. Purchased our room on Snique Away. com for a discounted price. We were very pleased with our rooms! We had a standard room and a deluxe suite. The rooms include a breakfast and discounted parking. Would definitely stay here again on our next visit.

Just returned after 4 nights in the Blakely. Worth every dollar for a great location, 4 blocks from Central Park and 13 from Times Square, easy walking distance (not so easy when it's 100+ degrees F but that's not the fault of the hotel). Really great staff, nothing is too much trouble and full of good ideas for sightseeing, restaurants,... More

This was a wonderful hotel to stay at and the staff was very friendly. They include a continental breakfast with the room fee that starts at 7:30AM. The room was very large for NYC standards and we felt very safe, it was very clean and we would stay there again.

My husband and I spent six nights at The Blakely in June 2013. We'd travelled from Brisbane, Australia for a week of sightseeing, dining, shopping and absorbing New York City.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
